Help Fund the Ecosexual Revolution and End Mountain-top Removal Mining in Appalachia

The film Goodbye Gauley Mountain weaves together the topics of sex, class, hillbillyism, queerness, capitalism and nature into a epic tale that will make you proud to be called a dirty environmentalist. This is, without compare, the sexiest nature documentary and one of the most profound films to deal with the beauty and tragedy of the Appalachian Mountains in the age of King Coal. It’ll make you fighting mad, then you’ll laugh, then you’ll get turned on. Hopefully you’ll fall wildly in love and get out there and defend your Lover Earth with a lust befitting the world’s most ancient and biodiversely kinky mountains. And the film could use your help.

From director Beth Stephens: “We are in the last 2 and a half days of the Kickstarter campaign for our film Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story. Please join us in getting the word out about the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains in the face of the devastation caused by mountain top removal. This unique documentary film squarely faces the horror of environmental devastation and even confronts it with love, joy and ecosexuality to entice others to stop MTR and stop it now!!”

Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story is currently in post production and nearly ready to be unleashed on the world.

I’ve had the chance to meet with and interview Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle, whom I consider friends, and a snippet of that can be read below. The full interview has been printed in the soon to be mailed Earth First! Journal. Continue reading

Outside of the village of Nallachampatti in southern India, a colony of Indian flying foxes roost in a fig tree, tasting of the delicate figs, lighting off over forests and swamps in the night to hunt mangoes, bananas and to sup on the nectar of flowers. They are sensual bats with a taste for the sweetness of life, which, as new research reveals, includes the flavors of sex, of vagina, especially in the morning.

In a study conducted over the course of a year, a team of scientists, wielding binoculars and a rather voyeuristic appetite, witnessed male bats perform oral sex on females over and over. The kinky Ph.D’s say these fruit eating bats do it to make the sex last longer, a hypothesis that seems to say Pteropus giganteus knows a little something about the artful ways of love.

“Apart from humans, bats also exhibit oral sex as a courtship behavior,” said Ganapathy Marimuthu, a bat researcher at Madurai Kamaraj University in India.
